Description: Acquiring its name from the fruit that Tambun, Ipoh, is famous for, THE POMELO lies within The Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat. One of the important components of this concept is spa cuisine – light, healthy and nutritious dishes. The POMELO innovatively incorporates the pomelo fruitinto refreshing spa cuisine for an awakening of the senses. THE POMELO’s spa cuisine menu explodes with flavours of organic fruits, vegetables, fresh seafood and premium poultry. No artificial seasoning or flavorings will be used in the cooking or preparation of food but lots of local fresh spices and ingredients are used instead.

Had a wonderful breakfast at The Pamelo which is also the only reataurant in the villa. The cheerful waiter came served us and food was served very soon! As we and our friends were very hungry after dipping in hot spring pool, we ate hungrily and ordered for more food. I noticed the waiter and waitresses never showed any annoyed... More

The Pemelo is the only restaurant in the Banjaran resort. Having breakfast there in the morning is a tranquil experience which it offers pristine fresh air and a calming pond view. Breakfast standard was very good. One can choose to go healthy and stay with fresh fruits and organic produce. However, some of the local dishes like nasi lamak was... More

My family experience begun well with seemingly friendly professional staff but it quickly turned into the most insulting, unprofessionally experience I ever had. How can a hotel ban you !!!!!! because you complained the food was cold and bad of quality! Not only did they ban us but they insulted my family with false statements and blatant lies. It seems...

I visited The Pomelo less than a week ago and already cannot wait to go back for another exquisite meal! We were welcomed personally by the friendly chef, and waited on by the ever-helpful staff, whom made our dining experience just delightful! The restaurant boasts healthy cuisines, and is an extremely affordable fine dining experience. Despite having a relatively small... More

If you are looking for a relaxing retreat that offers healthy fine dining- this is the place. Great selection of healthy food since this is a retreat. Perfect hideaway for couples. The service was excellent and ambience was beautiful & calm. Since it's exclusive fine dining, expect a fat bill as well :)

We stopped here for lunch on our way to Penang, and we were spoiled! The restaurant itself it set in the resort. Food is on the more expensive side for Malaysia, but good quality and service. We ended the meal with some great tea selections that you can choose from the shelves. After your meal, walk around the resort and... More

Cuisines here are full of design, creative and care, the service and surrounding just perfectly match your needs, either in romantic candlelight or in fresh organic energy. French styles with local flavors are especially unforgettable.

Considering that this is a luxury resort, it was a surprise that the prices of food here isn't pricy. The cooking is good and the serving of dishes is well-paced. Only thing to note though is you can just be a walk-in guest. For privacy, you need to do your booking in advance and only registered cars are allowed into... More
